Summary

What a Woman is a collection of short stories from Katherine women who have helped shape and build a community through hard work and tough times in the remote Territory outback. There is much triumph and happiness that shines through their journeys and struggles with isolation, tragedy, harsh tropical environments, floods and fire. These women have adapted, lived, loved and made an immense contribution to the township of Katherine while building the proud diverse cultural community that it has become.
